What do you guys think about those NZXT premium cables that already sleeved?
Are they any good?

The sleeving they use isn't the best, but for the price, they can't be beat (Modright ones are great too).

If you are using the extentions for 6 pin or 6+2 pin video power, the Modright ones are longer by at about 2 inches compared to the NZXT.

Actually I am not sure if that is true. The last time I checked the NZXT ones actually comes in two sizes. I believe it is 250mm and 450mm.

Using them now... I'm gonna try and change some of the sleeves to get it a nice offset colour later.

Ok.

After reading almost ALL 290 pages of this thread I decided I'm going to sleeve almost everything inside my case. You guys got me really hyped on this stuff. I do have a couple of questions that although I've read answers I'm not completely sure about.

1) In my HAF X the 8 pin mobo power is nowhere near long enough so I have to use an extension. I really want to get rid of it. The Ultra PSU's are pretty generic in cabling what's the easiest way for me to get rid of the extension. (I don't wanna solder cables)

2) Is it worth it to sleeve SATA power and regular sata cables since only one of them sticks in front of my mobo tray. (I probably will do it anyways out of impulse.)

3) The front panel connectors. Will I be able to sleeve them and heatshrink over the connector tips (So no wire shows) and still be able to plug them all in evenly.

4) For my front panel USB, Firewire and Headphone/Microphone can I just sleeve all those into a single 1/8th cable and use the MDPC Sata heatshrink since it seems excessive to single wrap each one of those cables.

Btw my order is
-100ft clean cut from furryletters
-60ft Red MDPC small sleeve
-4M black heatshrink
-2M Red heatshrink
-1M Sata heatshrink

Thanks in advance.

You could cut the 8 pin mobo power connector wires right at the connector and the extension right at the connector that connects to it then splice them using non-insulated butt connectors that you crimp on. Put a piece of heatshrink over the butt connector then sleeve over it. Now you have a longer 8pin cable. Something like this in the appropriate size.

The way I used to do it before I started soldering cables was to cut about 5cm away from the connector, stripping back a little bit on each end of the wire, adding in another long piece of wire (with the ends stripped) and twisting the exposed ends together and taping it up.

2) Is it worth it to sleeve SATA power and regular sata cables since only one of them sticks in front of my mobo tray. (I probably will do it anyways out of impulse.)

Depends on the case usually but you might as well purely for consistency.

3) The front panel connectors. Will I be able to sleeve them and heatshrink over the connector tips (So no wire shows) and still be able to plug them all in evenly.

Yep You usually can't fit all of them into one 1/8" sleeve but it still works fine having them split into 2.


4) For my front panel USB, Firewire and Headphone/Microphone can I just sleeve all those into a single 1/8th cable and use the MDPC Sata heatshrink since it seems excessive to single wrap each one of those cables.

The USB for the front panel is usually quite bulky and too large to fit in the 1/8" sleeve. MDPC sells USB sleeve specifically but I just used SATA sleeve at the time.

Btw my order is
-100ft clean cut from furryletters
-60ft Red MDPC small sleeve
-4M black heatshrink
-2M Red heatshrink
-1M Sata heatshrink

Looks like a solid order

Spider I'd rather save the extra 8 bucks on that USB cabling. I may just do the same thing you suggested as the front panel connectors and split the cable into two pieces of sleeving and seal it with the Sata Shrink. Would that be viable? And if it's not asking too much do you have a pic if you've ever tried that? and a small series of pics with your fix for the cables I follow the idea, I can't say I'm 100% confident in doing it just by following words =\\

I did an unboxing video for the NZXT sleeved extensions LOL. It's my first video and I didn't think of what to say before hand so yeah.... but let me know what you guys think.
